Big Data Ignite (BDI) was born out of a shared vision: To foster a local center of excellence in advanced computing technologies and practice. After initial success in organizing local Meetup groups, co-founders Elliott and Tuhin realized that to achieve their goal, the scope and scale of activism would need to grow. So, in 2016, the Big Data Ignite conference was launched! In its first year, the conference attracted over 30 presenters and over 200 participants. The two-day conference was designed to provide hands-on skills in data-related tools and techniques, as well as a practical overview of the data-technology landscape and the state of the art. The first day of the conference was devoted to deep-dive workshops by major tool vendors and academics. The second day was filled with visionary keynote addresses, panel discussions, and practical breakout sessions focusing on use-cases and strategy in the areas of data analytics, data management, IoT, and cloud computing. It was a combination that worked ‚ bringing together hands-on learning and strategic guidance from practicing experts.
Big Data Ignite 2017, 2018, and 2019 steadily built the momentum. The conference grew to three days, over 50 presenters, and over 400 participants, offering an even broader variety of workshops, keynotes, and breakout sessions, with a special focus on AI
Big Data Ignite in Uncertain Times
This year, BDI is hosting a series of webinars instead of a three-day conference. These webinars would be on every Tuesday and Thursday from September 15 – October 15 at 12:00 to 1:00 PM EST. Industry leaders and academics have already scheduled various presentations. BDI 2020 is my second year, and I’m also a key speaker for the September 15 session “Predictive Maintenance Pipeline Using R”.
